Holding or reserving items

If you wish to borrow an item which is currently out on loan, you are able to reserve the item by placing a hold. Once the hold has been placed you will be notified by your student email when the item is available for pick up. Note: the item will only be held for 3 days at the LRC service desk.

To place a hold, log into your personal LRC account, search the item on the catalogue and select hold.

Click on the My Account link (LRC Catalogue page) to place your hold online
my account

Enter your login details and click on the Log In button.

 

LRC staff are happy to assist if you need help reserving an item.
